I have three computers connected through a wireless router, one running XP media center, one XP home, one XP pro. I have run network wizard on all of them and they are all in the workgroup "workgroup" and have netbios enabled. The media center PC can view the workgroup and do netview without any problems, but when i try net view on the other two i get system error 53, the path cannot be found and i can't view the workgroup. I can connect to the interenet and all of that works, but i can't view the work group or share files or printers (which is my main concern since i want the laptop (xp home) to be able to use the desktop printers.)

i forgot to add that the media center pc also sees the other computers as being in the workgroup as well as seeing them in net view as servers
